Tsa02, yes, in many cases when a first map data of a country is announced it only has street level coverage of a few major cities. That should improve over time as updates are released.

ELEGEND_YVR, for individual consumers like us the only way to get the new data is to get an update or a new version of a navigation product that uses the data.

The get more info, keep reading press releases. Navteq publishes press releases when it makes available for its direct customers (product developers) first initial map data for a "new" country, or full (100% population) coverage of another country.

tsa02, some products may integrate the new data within few short months, but it may take even over a year with some other products.

Thanks Marvin. I only know of a few products that uses detailed Navigation software for Croatia like AdriaRoute(For Garmin) http://www.navigo-sistem.hr/index.php?page=products&pid=5&cid=83 a Pocket PC [Navman] and software only: http://www.mireo.hr/en/viaGPS/index.html
and for the resorts of Mexico, it's done by individuals (Mexico Maps): http://www.mexicomaps.com/index.lasso?ref=maps&categorykey=631&id=B72519D6EDB2BF928D0581EEF8D4E779

Not really any selection or options. So, I am not exactly sure what Navteq is referring to when they say they have updates, perhaps for Mexico City are other areas.

Navteq has the data. Now it's up to the developers to integrate the data into their products. Hopefully they will see enough potential market for these countries and they will include them in their existing products.

It would be helpful if Navteq had on its website a way for consumers to find out which (3rd party) products offer coverage of for various countries.

Mexico

As of today NAVTEQ's navigable database of Mexico covers 234,398 miles (377,227 kilometers) and provides street network data for more than 3,000 urban and suburban towns. Over 70% of the total population is covered in NAVTEQ's map data, which provides detailed points of interest such as toll gates, gas stations and rest stops as well as other relevant location information like neighborhood and postal code boundaries.

NAVTEQ Launches Map Reporter(TM) to Capture Users' Map Input

I've sent map feedback to Navteq in the past, and the experience was very good. There was an immediate automated feedback, and few weeks later, when investigation of my map feedback was completed, there was yet another feedback from Navteq. This on-line tool just got better. It now includes on-line map. Check it out at http://mapreporter.navteq.com


Newly Updated Site Encourages Users to Become 'Map Reporters'

CHICAGO, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NAVTEQ (NYSE: NVT), a
leading global provider of digital map data for vehicle navigation and
location-based solutions, has updated its popular online feedback tool and
renamed it NAVTEQ Map Reporter (TM). Now in its 11th year and having
already handled tens of thousands of update requests, the updated system is
now map-based, giving users who discover potential discrepancies an easier
way to provide feedback by pinpointing the exact location of the concern
for possible updating of the database. NAVTEQ(R) maps are consulted an
estimated 90 million times a day through vehicle navigation systems,
portable navigation systems, internet mapping sites and geographic
information systems applications.
Map accuracy is the single most important indicator of a user's
satisfaction with their navigation system. Many of the users of the NAVTEQ
map have expressed a desire to provide feedback directly to the company and
NAVTEQ has responded with an intuitive web interface. To address its global
audience, NAVTEQ continues to offer the program in 9 languages (i.e. Dutch,
English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Spanish, Swedish) and
has included freeform address entry that resolves and streamlines address
entry, the ability to attach images to clarify the nature of a concern and
preference storing and tracking to ensure returning users are able to
quickly submit and subsequently monitor their reports. Each submitted
report is followed up individually and "map reporters" are able to monitor
the resolution of their report and if a change is being made to the
database.
"NAVTEQ Map Reporter brings our established database updating system in
line with the higher expectations our user community have expressed -- for
accurate and timely digital maps -- and is an important part of how we
identify areas of change for prioritized database maintenance activities.
Aggregated map reports give us important insights into how our users are
experiencing the changing real world," said Cliff Fox, Senior Vice
President, NAVTEQ Map Division.
The new system is available at http://www.navteq.com or
http://mapreporter.navteq.com .

NAVTEQ = PHILIPS
TeleAtlas = Bosch

First Release of Thailand


CHICAGO, Feb. 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NAVTEQ , a leading global provider of digital map data for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, has announced its expanded digital map coverage in the Asia Pacific region with its first release of Thailand. The NAVTEQ(R) map of Thailand covers a population of more than six million and includes over 15,500 kilometers of road network within the province of Bangkok (Krung Thep Maha Nakhon).

"Our continuing commitment to the Asia Pacific region is driven by our mission to be a global supplier, establish a presence and do business in local markets and to meet the needs of our global customers who want to grow their navigation and location-based products and services," stated Rafay Khan, Vice President, Business Development Asia Pacific.

With the addition of Thailand, NAVTEQ offers robust digital map coverage in nine countries or territories within the Asia Pacific region, with plans for additional new country releases in 2007. Six countries or territories offer full coverage of the population, four of which feature 100% Detailed Coverage; NAVTEQ's highest coverage specification, which includes full attribution and verification of the complete road network. Along with its China joint venture, NAV2, NAVTEQ's Asia Pacific footprint currently covers over 700 million in population and includes over 10 million points of interest.

To build customer interest and work together in future releases, NAVTEQ has formed a strategic alliance with Able ITS (AITS). NAVTEQ and AITS will work together to develop a highly accurate digital map database that will enable the launch of navigable and location based services in Thailand. AITS has local expertise in Thailand as well as extensive experience in developing digital map databases with a strong foundation in quality, delivery and productivity.

Interesting article http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2007/feb/26/mapmakers_savor_every_detail_making_kansas_more_ac/

quote:
In Kansas, six counties have been driven from end to end, road to road: Douglas, Leavenworth, Shawnee, Johnson, Wyandotte and Sedgwick. Maps of these counties include extra attributes such as roads, medians and other road features that may not show up on a generic map. Even new restaurants wind up in the database, Barr said.

NAVTEQ has set a goal of 2008 for getting every county in the country up to that level.
